It is Crazy how your life can change

Thanks to HCG!!! Since starting HCG I have learned that I am gluten intolerant

Gluten gives me migraines
Leaves me bloated and unable to lose weight
Gives me a nasty rash that will not go away unless I cut out gluten
and finally screws with my bowels.

I have been Gluten free since 11/12/11 and have had no bloating, no migraines, and the rash is almost gone. Last night I was wearing a tank top that used to not even fit all the way over my fat and now it hangs below my butt. I was elated when I realized. I have lost 11lbs so far on day 19 of the Low Calorie Portion and have 21 more days to go. If I keep up like I am right now I will weight 179 at the end of round 1 and hopefully will continue to lose while on maintenance. After 6 weeks I will start round two where I hope to lose 30-40lbs and that will put me in my goal range for weight. If I do accomplish this I will just need to maintain my health weight and will be beyond happy with all that I have done!!

Today I made my first goal. I entered back into onderland 199 to be exact. I am beyond elated and can't wait to be in onderland permanently. The food is pretty good considering I cut out all carbs and gluten. Learning how to make really good food!!! I am using the drops but am going to switch to pellets.

I hope my first NSV is to fit into my new wedding ring. I bought it a size to small so that I would have to work to get back on!!! I did however learn that I am gluten intolerant which I would have never found out on my own!!

HCG while sick

Being sick has definitely lowered my will power and made me crave more food (since my body is using more to fight the chest cold) I have listened to my body and increased my calories a bit I have been maintaining my loss.

Today Was Beyond Hard

Today was day 1 of the low calorie part and I didn't load right I guess because I was having major hunger pains!!! I guess after three days they should go away. What I did learn was that Top Foods carries my Zevia, Melba, and Grissini bread sticks, They are a lifesaver tomrrow should be better ::

Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween was my last loading day and I made the most of it. I woke up and weighed in at 205.3 so I was down again for a total loss of 3lbs during my two loading days. I am pretty sure I put some back on which was what I was supposed to do. We had a potluck at work and I ate everything. I had fried chicken, steak, gyoza's, cupcake, candy, soda, Shepherds pie, and stuff I can't remember. It was all so delicious!!! go everyone at work they did amazing.

Today is my first low calorie day. I weighed my lean protein for today and cooked it. I have prepared both my lunch and dinner. I will admit I was worried about the drops and remembering to take them at the right times. My meal plan is this
Breakfast: Banana
Lunch: Chicken on Spinach with a little lemon for flavoring
Snack: Apple
Dinner: Chicken with tomato and grissini bread sticks
Snack: Zevia soda
I can wait to weigh in tomorrow and see where I am at. My mentor said I should be breaking 200 by Saturday.
